Peace is highest (dear william)

Rate this Entry
In a dream I saw
that peace is higher
than any desire -
this secret law
does not requite
with 'might makes right,'
or the barbed wire fences;
it is more like the senses
when they are clear.

what fragrance blessed the earth,
when you arrived,
dear william?

what golden arrangement of fate?
what thrived?

don't answer, don't answer,
let the grace of the dancer
speak to starlight above,
for the grace of our love,
and the highlight of fate.
your life, joy incarnate,
your wisdom is pure.
your voice is sure.
break firmament.
just a little dent.
there - your strength,
this earth's breadth and length,
this is your source seen clearly,
which you shared with us dearly.

flow into and out of this life -
let heaven know of your strife -
it is only one answer to call,
that the strength of life is all:

dear william, can you feel it now?
the ocean's rise, the sacred vow -
the gentle swaying of the rain
as it splashes upon the pane?

this spark will rise and glisten, it,
dear fragment of the infinite,
has seen the stars you made,
and how it tells us of the glade!

it is only sky, this hope eternal,
that glistens in the mind supernal;
this song you sing protects our soul,
and lets us know that you are whole.

and if someone upon it chances
to see our light which here dances,
know that we do not need a thing,
except to love and live and sing.

'A ramble on peace'

'On Protection Life's Harmony'

(Written around 2015)

eternal way of peace-
hidden in plain sight
infinite peace from
love, and beauty's light.
persuade, never -
live in peace, forever.

energy of mindfulness,
and peace,
to all the worlds.

deeply rooted in tradition,
i have discovered new-found vision,
who i am and what i stand for is written
in these lines, a bit of life, past history,
and then all of peace i have found.
and life, let us share peace.
to all of the world.

I searched for a good while for the right title for this - I share a bit of my life, of my thoughts, and the rest is all about peace.

others I thought of were

"protecting all species"
"protection and peace"
"eternal way of peace"
"on peace" (my friend)
-that is, that one was hers.

I also thought of "who I am and what I stand for."

or "on protection of life"

without further ado:

"on protection of life's harmony."

Protect our Mother Earth, save and protect all her species - we are all one, vast, interconnected web of life; if we attain lasting harmony with Her, then we may have many millennia, countless millennia, to explore the divine life on earth; to explore the infinite heaven while we are still here. There are infinite realms of consciousness, they may be found right here on Earth. . .

Lastly - energies - work from peace, mindfulness, eternal preserverence and patience. . . Busy-ness is not our friend; eternal patience is.

"Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience." -- Emerson

When we have eternal patience, then we are kind - when we have no time, then we are more likely to ignore suffering. Therefore (one other, simple and in all likelihood, unchanging laws of the universe), patience is our friend, for it allows us to be compassionate, and reach love and peace; haste is not, in the long run, our best friend...

What energy we find, embody, maintain, that is the energy which we share with the world.

Our intention toward others reflects their intention towards us - and when we see others as kind, benevolent, loving, patient, and wise - they tend to become this way. "The eye altering, alters all." --William Blake

"In the divine consciousness, one cannot be harmed." -- Mira Alfassa

"If I am to hear another man's opinion, let it be expressed positively." -- Goethe

"It is a poor pupil who doesn't surpass his master." -- Goethe

So I wished to create this preamble - if it seems out of place, forgive; these are only some words. . . to introduce the idea, that working for protection of species = #1 goal, and how to attain one's best strength, healing, and energy. . .

Two songs:

Love Our Mother Earth

Love our Mother Earth,
know the things she does with such delight,
know when she tells you her season is right,
Love our sweet Mother earth.

To win others over, cheerfulness, kindness, strength, peace, and hope, and sharing all of these - this is the best way. . stay cheerful in the face of adversity - this was a Sufi saint's remark.

You can achieve anything - but what to do with such an ability?
